to prevent one today. put the economy in terms we noneconomists understand. it's like a car. >> to return to the driving analogy, if the incoming data supports the view the economy's able to sustain a reasonable cruising speed we will ease pressure on the accelerator by gradually reducing pace of purchases. >> not put on the brake but was ease off accelerator. the fed has been buying $85 billion a month in bonds. that money rushes into the economy, fueling a huge rally in stocks, huge rally until this week. it keeps interest rates low on your home and car loans. but investors are nervous that tapering, taking the foot off the gas, will end the big gains. just the fear of ben bernanke easing up on the gas pedal sent the dow down 500 points wednesday and thursday. regardless if you own any stocks, your money is on the line. terry sav itch, author of the savage truth on money, chief investment strategist, welcome to the program. you say all of the worrying about when stocks will pull back is a good thing. explain. >> well, i'm not saying that it's a good thing for your psyche to be worried a
to the world economy. >> at the summit the g8 leaders issued a cautious assessment of the global economy. in a statement, the g8 warned that, quote, global economic prospects remain weak. though downside risks have reduced thanks in part to significant policy actions taken, unquote. in the u.s., the euro zone and japan. they depicted 2014 as a quote unquote difficult one with the euro zone in recession and the american economy still hampered by high unemployment. china did not participate in the discussions since china is not a member of the g8 although japan, its neighbor, is. >> why are the economies around the world slowing down. >> because the economies around the world have accumulated too much debt and they don't know how to get the economies moving again. china's growth rate is down to 6 or 5%. no one knows where it's going. exports within the european community are dropping all over the place. virtually every european country -- look at the unemployment rate in spain. it's 26%. you look at italy, france and spain, they're all cass -- basket cases. they have a debt to retail. just
people, is this fundamental? is this is there wrong with the economy? so many people came back to me and says, it's hedge funds taken out, they want to lock them in, they're resetting, moving to cash, resetting, and it's going to be temporary. so it wasn't nearly as scary and it really was hedge funds, that fast, short-term money. not the long term, people. >> so ben bernanke didn't say we're taking money out of the economy, we're putting on the brake. he said sometime in the future, when the unemployment gets to 7%, we will slow down on the accelerator. >> it's exactly what people wanted them to do and it's exactly how they should do it. give them lots of time to adjust, lay out the framework, give them exact details. this is when we think we're going to do it, we're going to do it gradually. and if the economy weakens, we're going to get back in and make sure it's okay. >> ben bernanke says the fed will pull back stimulus measures as the economy improves. that is a good thing the fed chief is giving a road map for that. that means the u.s. economy can stand on its own. that means t
companies that are part of a share economy, get more people involved in the economy in general, and creating ideas about how people can participate. we came across a very great idea that as we go through more exercises in our disaster preparedness, ann and her staff have been great at that. in fact, the last one i kind of had fun in, how do we feed 10,000 people in the middle of the tenderloin in a major erredthtion quake disaster. we walked through that. we saw how meals are served. we tried to do it in the proper way. ~ earthquake we know we're going to need a lot of help. the main message that we wanted to have was after a disaster hits, we want the message to be out before disaster, during a disaster, and right after, that we welcome everybody to participate in our recovery. and the best way to recover quickly and faster is we engage everybody immediately about how we can help and assist each other. and that's partly a philosophy of the sharing economy as well. and whether it's a need for space, people need to have space as they did in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, or now in oklahoma

and any type of economic activity spreads through the entire economy. it is a great example of everybody working together. city economic development is the engine of our nation and we need to provide an environment with start ups that can flourish and if we do that, all the the grid lock in washington, our economy will grow. i would reach to everybody to remember that everybody has problems, every government has problems. when you look at america, we've had 235 years of dysfunction and it's doing well so far. maybe it comes with the territory. san francisco has shown how government can function and the citizens of san francisco and the whole region are benefit ting from it. we've had something like a 30 percent in tech growth. this is what we call the big app instead of the big apple. in the next decade the capital will continue to grow. last year it was like a hundred new york city based companies that acquired $1.8 billion. it's just the beginning. if you think about san francisco and new york, the future couldn't be brighter because tech business is where the business is where people
, but the way they're doing it, i have a big worry about how it will affect the economy. and to hear the cbo which i call the congressional bull crap office with their numbers say it will help the economy and they say it will help the economy and help the deficit, i don't think so. >> hard for me to believe that, too, charlie. every time the cbo scores something and all of these things where we spend trillions of dollar, somehow we save money at the end, just baffles me. >> like obamacare. >> exactly. >> i'm trying to think of an anti-union angle here. i mean, i want to correct ben on one thing. he made the point before that immigration is basically to to meet demand for labor. not to drive down the cost of labor. so -- >> among other things. >> what's odd about this is that we don't have a demand for hard labor. and they're still thinking about bringing people in. and this is what i don't get from the left. they say they're for the poor and everything, to give benefits out. and basically help the poor. this doesn't help the poor, this hurts the poor. it drives down the base wage rate. >> it
employment gets down to 6.5% and once you start seeing the economy get better, more people going in the workforce, it will take a while before they raise rates. >> but this has been a bond buying binge. if it stops, if the fed pulls back, isn't that a sign that the economy is improving and isn't that good for the market? >> brenda, i think you're absolutely right and it's a return that we can rely on. the fundamentals of the economy, you have the jobless rate being reduced, you have housing up and you have corporate profits an all time high. so i think it was an indication by bernanke that we are seeing these indicators and these good forecasts and that please look at this because we may -- if we hit 7% unemployment, we may start ultimate putting on the brakes as it relates to easy money, if you will. >> john, is this a bubble about to burst? are we about to see what happens to the housing market? >> no i think what happened is a bubble was starting to form because of the low rates. the market was getting ahead of the real economy which is still a little lackluster in a lot of ar
an immigration system in our country that meets the needs of a growing economy, the biggest economy in the world that focuses on making our country stronger, not weaker, and hopefully will put this debate behind us. so i yield the floor. >> yield for a question. first could i say all of us who have had the honor of working with you and the senator from north dakota greatly appreciate the work that you've done. if there is going to be a broad bipartisan support for the final product it will be because of what you and the senator from north dakota have done. and i'm very, very grateful for that. and i think that it is important wouldn't you agree that people understand that this is a very tough bill. and it required a lot of cooperation from our friends on the other side of the aisle to go along and agree with this. i think that they've shown a great deal of compromise in order to reach this point and agree with us on this legislation, which clearly we need bipartisan support for. but i would like to ask the senator again for a couple of specifics. because i think it is important we understand how

a whole bevy of coming in this economy that affects the management and the host company that is start ing in san francisco that want to plan with us and not wait for a disaster to hit and then find out that we could have accessed many people. that is helpful for the mayor to search for more partners and get ready and be more excited about recovery. when you look at what happened in new orleans and all the victims of tornados. they always tell you they could have been more ready for this had they engaged people ahead of time. this is what we are doing to improve these changes. if the economy gets hit by a major earthquake, that's an incredible hit to the rest of the country. we have to invest a lot more. that is one example of how we can use a lot more technology companies helps us with things that have challenged our cities. >> the likelihood of an earthquake is less than out here, although i have lived in city hall, working there one day when the building actually shook. it was the first that i noticed. everything did shake a little bit. it wasn't particularly frightening. right now we a

's exactly what wall street feared when the chairman of the federal reserve said that the economy had improved enough for the fed to ease back on one of its stimulus programs. the dow lost 559 points in the two days after that announcement. it stabilized today, gaining 41 points. it's not just the stock market. anthony mason tells us higher interest rates are also affecting the housing market. >> one of the things i love about this house most is the kitchen. >> reporter: in dumont, new jersey, 30-year-old jeremy mcdonald decided he couldn't wait any longer to jump into the housing market. >> and now, you know, that the prices are starting to trickle up a little bit, it's a good time to get in there because i know the market is not going down anywhere. >> reporter: realtor kelly weber said in the past few months it's suddenly become a sellers' market. >> they're starting to get over asking prices. >> reporter: weber says two forces are combining to drive up prices. >> inventory is low and you have buyers wanting to get in before the rates start creeping further up which is creating thi
costs, grow our economy, create jobs and stabilize our fiscal health, this year i'm proposing a budget that protects our social safety net, one that increases public safety, and one that invests in our city's infrastructure at unprecedented levels. and it is a budget that significantly grows our city's reserves. this budget is being delivered as san francisco's economy is recovering, going, and moving in the right direction. and san franciscans are getting back to work. in fact, our unemployment rate has dropped, as you all know, from 9.5% in january of 2011 to an astounding 5.4% just last month. (applause) >> i know, i know it has -- it has not been easy. we've had to work hard with our health services system, our care -- our health care providers, and labor to reduce employee health care costs. and because of our collaboration, we will now save $52 million over the next two years. and we've made tough but necessary choices on everything from escalating pension costs to reforming our unfair job punishing business tax. we've injected a healthy dose of fiscal discipline with two-year bu
constituents have made it clear time and time again that we must make us work together to grow the economy. once again, republicans refuse to listen. instead, we are debating legislation that endangers women's health and disrespects the judgment of american women and their doctors on how to make judgments about women's health. this bill would deny care to women and the most desperate of circumstances. it is yet another republican attempt to endanger women. it is disrespectful to women, unsafe or families, and unconstitutional. at the start of the congress, the republicans take great pride in reading the constitution, but then they proceed to ignore it. one example is this clearly unconstitutional bill. they claim to reduce the role of government, except when it comes to women's most personal decisions about their reproductive health. leading medical experts believe this legislation is dangerous and wrong. that is the message we have seen from doctors and health- care providers who point out that this would put medical professionals in the untenable position when treating women in need -- w
